Washington sources reported that US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley has slammed the “misleading and politically motivated” UN report on poverty and inequality in the country that accuses President Donald Trump of forcing millions of citizens into deprivation. As per report Philip Alston, a New York University law and human rights professor, led the study travelling across US. He said that the US was fast becoming a “champion of inequality.
Alston said Americans born into poverty are more likely than ever before to stay that way, the UN special reporter on extreme poverty and human rights. Meanwhile Haley, the former governor of South Carolina, said on Thursday she was “deeply disappointed” that Alston had “categorically misstated the progress the US has made in addressing poverty in (his) biased reporting”.
Accordingly Alston will be presenting his report on US poverty to the rights council on Friday, laying out his key findings to its 46 members and to an empty chair where the US traditionally sat. Moreover Haley said the UN monitor should instead have used his voice “to shine a light” on countries where governments were causing pain and suffering on their own people. Further he concluded that though levels of hardship had been high for decades within America, Trump was taking it to another level by taking the country towards a “dramatic change of direction” that was rewarding wealthy Americans while stripping vulnerable Americans of welfare protections.
